Don't Be Afraid if I Hug You (Se ti abbraccio non aver paura)  Italy / 2020 / 56 mins

Franco has an autistic son, Andrea. When Andrea turned 18, father and son decided to cross the United States with a motorbike. From that adventure, the writer Fulvio Ervas wrote the book Don't be afraid if I hug you, that in 2019 became a movie directed by Academy Award Winner Gabriele Salvatores. During the production of the movie, we decided to take Franco and Andrea and put them again on a motorbike, to cross all Europe to Africa, to arrive in the desert of Sahara. Creating a new documentary about autism, about the relationship between a father and son, and dedicated to a man that decided to never give up.
